My grand parents lived on Makamah Beach from the 40's-70's at #8, I can remember playing all around the area, there were no other homes besides the ones on Makamah Beach road and 2 or 3 along the main Rd, the bluffs, I called them the cliffs back then were always changing from erosion, I think it was sometime in the 80's when the cliffs were plowed down and boulders were put at the base for erosion control, It was 1968 when my father took a job as the caretaker of the Geissler's estate and we lived in the carriage house for one summer. The main house was empty and smelled of mildew, also it was very creepy in the house like one of those old homes from a horror movie, I cant remember too much of the detail's I was only 6 at the time. The beach was always my favorite place to go. After my grand father passed in 1979 and my grand mother could not take care of the house my parents decided to sell it, that was a very sad day. I have been passed the house a few times, once in the late 80's and once in the 90's when visiting the area, does anyone know if it is still there. attached are a few photos from the past.

The large brick house is still there on Hayes hill. I wonder about its history when I go by it. I assume the geisslers owned most of mystic place years ago prior to the construction of homes?

A lot of construction was going on there a few years ago so I would assume it was sold and RE Done at that time.

I found some more info on the house on this site Haunt in Hayes Hill House Northport, Ny 11768 Northport, NEW YORK Suffolk Haunt

The house was built in 1929. It was the Geisler Estate. The Hayes's bought the main house in 1969 for $110,000 and they totally redecorate it. The builder, who bought up the rest of the property and built all the houses on Hayes Hill Drive named the street Hayes Hill Drive after Edward F Hayes III. The Carriage House was bought by the Cass's and converted into a home. The caretakers cottage was torn down. The Hayes family consisted of the parents, three daughters and a son. It was bought by a builder and totally refurbished. The house included: five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a gianourmous livingroom, a formal dining room, a family diningroom, a breakfast room, a garden room, a butlers pantry, a huge kitchen where they kept the original woodburning stove (from 1929), a billiard room, a library, a foyer with an amazing double stairway, a huge attic, a screened in porch off the livingroom, a screened in porch off the kitchen, a balcony off the sittingroom upstairs, a tennis court, huge garage, beautiful property and waterviews. - See more at: Haunt in Hayes Hill House Northport, Ny 11768 Northport, NEW YORK Suffolk Haunt

Thats true. My family lived on the estate year round. The Geisslers came out in the summer and holidays. The treated us like their own children. Wonderful childhood. My dad was the caretaker.
